THE LANGUAGE OF TASTING

There’s a famous saying in Zen studies (so famous that even I know it; I do not study Zen) that to hit the target you don’t aim for the target, you aim through it.

Jancis Robinson on Wine Aesthetics

Jancis Robinson has some interesting things to say about wine aesthetics.

Last week she reposted a summary of a lecture she gave to the British Society of Aesthetics in 2012. It is interesting to know what a prominent wine writer and wine expert has to say about some of the issues that preoccupy philosophers.

ZAFA Wines owner Krista Scruggs accused of sexual misconduct

In the wine world, Krista Scruggs has been viewed for years as an up-and-coming star.

Wine Enthusiast named the Isle la Motte vintner one of “40 Under 40 Tastemakers” in 2018. The next year, Bon Appetit called Scruggs, owner of ZAFA Wines, the “hottest name in natural wine.” In 2020, Fast Company included her on its “Most Creative People in Business” list, and NBC’s “Today Show” chronicled how a self-described “black, queer woman” was making it in Vermont agriculture.

Giving back in South Africa

Giving back in South Africa

Although it resulted in commercial disasters such as bringing wine exports to a grinding halt, the pandemic has also sped certain things up. We’ve all been forced to make choices in this past year that have affected both our work and personal lives. We’ve all had to go deeper. In the eternal battle between good and evil some have revealed themselves as crisis opportunists, using the pandemic as a tool for their own nefarious ends – many workers have been laid off, with COVID-19 being the convenient excuse – or to profit from it. Let’s not get into the PPE scams and black-market cigarettes …

Explore Méthode Cap Classique, The Bubbly Wine From South Africa

Sparkling wine is made around the world in a variety of methods, but one can’t just call it bubbly and call it a day. Nomenclature plays a role in the culture of wine with bubbles. While there are unique steps at work in the cellar, in some cases the craftsmanship may be similar but the identification is different because of where it’s made.

Why does Lettie hate Pinotage?

Why does Lettie hate Pinotage?

Most in the Cape wine business likely do not know who Lettie is, and couldn't care less if she hates Pinotage. Further, the author doesn’t know Lettie personally and can only guess about her reasons for detesting and generally “bad mouthing”, as we call it in the US, our 96-year-old native cultivar.

Jamie Goode: Making peace with Pinotage

It’s great to be doing a new column for Winemag.co.za. So how should I kick this off? I asked editor Christian Eedes for a steer. His response? ‘1 June is the release of our second annual Pinotage Report,’ he said. “It would be great to get your thoughts on this always controversial variety. A vain pursuit? Unrealized potential? Better than most people give it credit for?” It took me about five seconds to agree that this is actually a great idea.

Tim Atkin MW: why Argentina 2019 is “the best vintage I have ever tasted”

Tim Atkin MW: why Argentina 2019 is “the best vintage I have ever tasted”

It was Sod’s Law that Tim Atkin MW had to taste the Argentina 2019 vintage in Wimbledon rather than in the country itself. 2019, a “cool, elegant and historic” vintage in Atkin’s words, had been heralded as potentially the greatest ever, and so it proved. Not only was the long, cool harvest conditions perfect for making stand-out wines, but the weather complemented the brighter, fresher styles that many of the best bodegas are producing these days. Atkin lists the top 10 wines from 2019 that he would have on his wine list, as well as explains his thinking behind awarding a wine in South America a 100-point score for the very first time.
